    I spent many years in the industry with Dave, more particularly at Dome Petroleum. Dave had a knack for negotiating and I learned alot from his abilities. This is indeed a sad day for all of the industry.

    Rest in peace buddy.

    I am deeply saddened by the news of David’s passing. It was only two years ago he was at my dad’s funeral. It was so nice to visit with him again. He had a great and positive impact on me when I was a young person. He was a great friend. A marvelous neighbour.

    I worked with Dave for a number of years back in Dome Petroleum days. Dave was a very talented landman and a very good businessman. Dave was also a very good and loyal friend and although I had not seen him in a year or so it was always great to bump into him and catch up.
    I will miss Dave, my condolences to his family.

  21. Mr. and Mrs. Lailey, Michael and Susan,

    I was so sorry to hear of David’s passing. I have very fond memories of growing up together and spending many hours playing in your fabulous back yard as kids. We were probably annoying little girls, but David always took the time to push us on your enormous swing set.
    My thoughts are with you all during this difficult time.
